The blade is made from cryo treated 52100 (high carbon ball bearing steel) hardened to Rc62-63, it's tough yet easy to sharpen.
The blade's surface has been treated to what I'm calling a "vintage acid bomb" patina, a multi-level combination of acids/mustard applied in stages. This was done for aesthetics as well as for a reduction in (negative) oxidation and reactivity. The result is a unique one of a kind look that has some worthwhile function to it.
The wa octagonal handle is made from a lively dyed maple burl paired with really nice marbled buffalo horn on both ends. The butt cap is rounded. The color of the maple burl was listed as "teal" when purchased, it leans towards green vs blue. The G10 spacers are black and orange in color.
The handle has been sealed with several coats of a varnish/oil finish.
